I would like to thank Maureen from the Go2Africa team for all her effort and expertise in booking our trip. We booked the trip only 1 month before we departed and by far the service, as well as the price was the best we received compared to a few other vendors. My husband and I didn’t have much time to research and orgnaise our honeymoon, however, we did know that we wanted to go to Kenya and Tanzania on safari and to also have a rest at a beach resort at the end of our trip. One email to Maureen and she was on it! With our price range in hand, Maureen contacted her vendors and managed to book it all. We finalised all the details and payment within the first week we made contact, which was a real ease considering we had been very stressed beforehand. Payments were also processed through a secure online system, which was very user friendly. Maureen also received emails and phone calls throughout the lead up to our trip, as well as on the night before we departed, with lots of silly last minute questions. Her advice was spot on, and she was more than happy to assist. The transfers to and from the airport were well organised and the safaris were amazing! Maureen planned our trip perfectly! She knew exactly the right amount of time to spend at each location and each lodge, making sure we didn’t miss out on a tourist attraction such as Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crater etc. I was a bit sceptical in the beginning, we researched the hotels that Maureen had booked for us and they were all rated quite high from people on TripAdvisor and from there we had confidence that Maureen knew what we wanted from our honeymoon. I feel as though I have experienced everything that the Masai Mara and Serengeti have to offer in the most efficient and thought-out way possible. I would not hesitate to recommend Maureen and the team from Go2Africa to anyone especially my friends and family. Thank you again we had an amazing honeymoon.

Relating to the Nairobi International Airport fire: Please tell Emma thank you for her assistance during this time. The unfortunate event put us into Nairobi almost exactly 24 hours later then expected but she was in communication with our driver and the hotels and our driver. Our trip was wonderful and I would recommend Go2Africa to anyone I know traveling your direction. You exceeded our expectations. Thank you again, and tell Emma thank you too.

In the end, we landed upon a company called “Go2Africa,” which had overwhelmingly positive feedback all over the internet. After a few emails to test the waters, we were convinced that this was our way to get2Africa. They offer a wide array of tours, but the beauty is that you are traveling on your own. You aren’t pooled together with 30 strangers and forced onto a bus. They take into account your goals for your trip. We worked with Tracy, and she couldn’t have been more prompt and helpful. We decided on a trip that would wind from Johannesburg to Kruger National Park and then into Zimbabwe. We told Tracy we also wanted to go to Chobe National Park in Botswana, and she planned everything out for us. It was such a relief. Looking around on the internet at the options for traveling in that part of the world can be overwhelming, and much of the information is contradictory in nature. The best thing about Go2Africa, though, is their prices. For the services, and the quality of the hotels, you cannot do better.

"We have had a wonderful trip. The Simbambili Lodge with an atmosphere we only could dream of. Also, we saw all the big five, several times - and even a big elephant bull came to greet us when we were bush walking with our ranger. Rovos Rail was fantastic, and above expectations with regards to the precise organisation of everything - and the fabulous, inclusive golf courses were amazing. We would all love to come again. The total concept, with all the in-between details with regards to pick-ups, storage etc worked really good. Thanks to you Monique, for all the preparations with all necessary contact information and good advice from you and Go2Africa; we appreciate, though we never had to use it. Again, we have had an amazing experience, and I hope we will be coming back soon!"

"We had the most fantastic trip imaginable and sang your praises Emma repeatedly during our time in East Africa! There was never a moment that we felt unsafe or uncared for. Each time we arrived anywhere or had a driver set a time for our meeting, that person was evident, smiling and eager to accommodate us in every way possible. The knowledge and friendliness of each and every person we were with was exemplary. Any misgivings or concerns about our trip were entirely unfounded. Go2Africa was exceptional."
Lois Kelley who worked with Emma Harrop on her September 2012 safari
"Thanks again for your outstanding customer service! Just so you are aware, we were recommended two travel agents and you exceeded the expectations by far! We truly appreciate the impeccable service by yourself Lianne, and Go2Africa."

"I have used Go2Africa twice now - and I have yet to experience a problem. For an experienced traveller like me, it is unbelievable. Well done."

"I would like to let Go 2 Africa know that I have had a fantastic experience with your company, mostly because of the excellent service of Maureen Stover. I am in Australia and was looking for a Group holiday that included small children in Kenya. Maureen sent me approx. 6 different options for us to choose from and she took my 3 and 7 year old into consideration on all fronts and sent them within a day. I bombarded her with questions and she happily answered every single one of them with politeness and efficiency. Nothing was ever a problem for her and it has been a breath of fresh air. I am sure it is not easy trying to create the perfect adventure for 11 people but Maureen did it with ease. Being the first time I had booked an holiday online and the company being in a different country and having to pay nearly $40 000 you can imagine our trepidation, Maureen made all of us feel confident that we were dealing with a reputable company and that we were not making a huge mistake which in todays day and age is paramount to online transactions that large. I would also like to commend her on the efficiency of our final itinerary and vouchers as the information that was included was exceptional and has left us feeling confident and secure for our trip. I was exceedingly impressed with all the emergency contact numbers even adding the contact details for the Australian Embassy catering directly to our nationality which is just fantastic. We have yet to leave for our holiday but if it is anything like Maureen's service I am sure it will be everything we expected and more. I would hope that customer service will let the appropriate heads of department know that Maureen is a credit to Go 2 Africa."
